Clara Lee has what it takes to help you navigate the exciting and sometimes challenging path to buying and selling real estate in Silicon Valley. Her goal is to make your real estate experience as stress-free as possible, accompanying you every step of the way.
Keenly aware of how the purchase or sale of real estate is both a business decision as well as a personal one, Clara brings with her a background in finance and human resources in high-tech. A resident of Silicon Valley and the Bay Area for over 30 years, she is a second generation real estate professional.

Clara is a graduate of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas where she received dual degrees in Business Administration (majoring in Finance) and Mathematics.
Clara’s connection to the “heart” of Silicon Valley includes her expertise on the various school systems and communities of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties not only as a realtor but also as a parent.

Clara has been an amazing agent. She has helped me sell multiple properties, all for a far higher price than I could’ve imagined. She’s also helped me buy property on a number of occasions - helped pick the right location and price. In both buying and selling, she’s made the process seamless and easy. Anyone not working with her is making a mistake.
